Changing your smile with orthodontic care is one of the most obvious ways to overhaul and renew your look. With options like Invisalign, invisalignwhich uses unnoticeable, clear aligner trays instead of metal brackets and wires, you can straighten your smile efficiently and subtly. But how does Invisalign work? What is the science behind this virtually invisible orthodontic treatment? Find out with Dr. Marcia Martinez in Orlando, FL.

What is Invisalign? 
Invisalign uses the same principals as traditional braces to move the teeth. Just the right amount of pressure applied to the teeth moves them into their desired positions. However, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays rather than metal brackets and wires. This gives you the freedom to realign your smile and correct your bite discreetly and effectively. Additionally, Invisalign is completely removable, allowing you to easily clean and care for your teeth and giving you the freedom to eat the foods you love without the hassle of traditional braces.

The Science Behind Invisalign
The design of Invisalign’s aligner trays is based on a calculated prediction of where the teeth will move throughout treatment. The basis for this prediction comes from a 3D model of your mouth taken to your dentist. The series of trays, worn one after another, place pressure onto the teeth little by little. Your dentist may place tooth-colored bumps called attachments onto the teeth to further aid in the distribution of pressure. Attachments help some teeth move more or less than others.

Invisalign Treatment in Orlando, FL
A good candidate for Invisalign is in good general and dental health and would like to commit to improving their smile. Patients should wear Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day, making their commitment to the treatment crucial in achieving a positive result.
